Dreams of a guide represent your higher self that embodies wisdom, confidence, clarity, certainty, the answers to your questions, and is familiar with the terrain you are traveling. Your dream is giving you the message that it would be wise to incorporate the guide’s perspective into your daily travels along your life’s path. See Angel and Higher Self....

Whether your dream featured acting as a guide, being guided, seeing others guided, or consulting a guide or guidebook, it is an augury of an interesting new opportunity through an influential friend which you would do well to consider.... The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams
(1) If in your dream someone is guiding you, it probably means your unconscious is offering assistance to your conscious mind in its quest for self-knowledge.
(2) If the guide is of the opposite sex, he or she is possibly an image of your animus / anima, whose positive function is to help the ego in its exploration of the unconscious. (For anima / animus, see Brother / Sister, section (4))
(3) If the guide is of the same sex, and especially if he or she is old and wise, you may have* made contact with a deep source of wisdom and power in your unconscious, or — more accurately, perhaps - it has made contact with you. Pay attention to what it ‘says’, either in the dream itself or when, in reviewing the dream, you identify with or converse
with the guide. (For identifying / conversing) See also Mother, Wise Old Man / Woman.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
You do not have to be a professional preacher or guru to have this archetype, as we can all learn to lead others spiritually through developing our own intuitive spiritual awareness and passing on whatever we have learned with genuine humility.
If a guide or spiritual master appears in your dreams, your unconscious is urging you to pass your wisdom onto others. Alternatively it can warn against controlling others rather than guiding them.... The Element Encyclopedia
A character that offers you advice or who appears to be an authority figure or just someone with a smile that may not particularly fit into dream is most likely one of your guides.
For instance you dream of coming out of an undesirable house where there are shadowy people cooking raw stakes that remain raw even after cooked and are intended for you to eat, and you are a vegetarian. Suddenly and out of context to the rest of the dream you find yourself in the outside of the house and getting onto a bus with your best friend, the bus is not moving, but you feel relieved not to be around the cooks. You specifically notice and remember the bus driver, but he/she does not seem to be playing a part of your dream subject – which is you and your friend on a bus that is not moving.
The driver is your guide here. You were taken from an unpleasant dream that you got involved with in the psychic plain by your guide and put in a protected area, the bus.
The guide realizes that things experienced in the psychic realm can be designed to cause you problems in the awaken state and even cause unpleasant physical manifestations to occur. Most likely your guide will also take an opportunity such as this to give you a message.
A guide will always be kind and loving to you or sometimes just silent but always positive.
A guide can be just a voice you hear.
The voice will be a pleasant rather than an unpleasant or frightening one. This is not to say it can’t be a stern and authoritive voice if that is what you need to get the message being given. Government-Control, internal and external law making and enforcing.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary
1- A guru appearing in a dream is a representation of the wisdom of the unconscious. As that wisdom becomes available we often bring it through to conscious knowledge by the figure of the Wise Old Man (See Introduction).
2- Psychologically we all need a symbol for a father or authority figure and this is one such representation. In searching for knowledge of a specific sort, we need an external figure with whom to relate. In Eastern religions, this is the guru who performs the same function as the priest in Western religion.
3- For many of us, God is too remote for us to be able to have a personal relationship with him.
A guru therefore becomes the personification of all wisdom made available to us through his perception. He will assist us to access our own inate wisdom.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary
Vision: Connecting with a guru is a good omen: you are forgiving yourself and establishing new goals in your life; or you are changing the course of your life. Meeting a guru: you will find guidance, new insights, and new direction. See Hermit, Old Man.
Depth Psychology: The guru in your dream is not a stranger but a symbol of your inner strength. It means you are looking for spiritual guidance, knowledge (including self-knowledge), and wisdom. Trust and accept the guidance that is offered because you will view your life from a “higher” plane—the guru is truly a wonderful symbol!... Dreamers Dictionary

Thus, someone who is considered to be knowledgeable in the field of business might be seen as a guru.

A guru may represent the wisdom within you. Pay heed to what he or she says. (Spiritual traditions in which gurus figure invariably speak of an inner guru.) So far as personal growth or healing is concerned, the unconscious will often take the lead. The ego often obstructs this creative process by clinging to its old way or refusing to acknowledge that the unconscious might know best.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
The guru can represent our higher self and our innate wisdom. In dreams, she often takes a religious form—like Buddha, Shiva, or a saint—or appears in a long-bearded old man body, a priest, a prophet, a magician, or a king. She can also take a female figure (Mother Earth or a goddess). For example, the Virgin Mary is the oneiric symbol of supreme compassion and love for fellow beings. Dreams of this type announce your life opens up to a great spiritual opportunity.
Traditions such as the ones of Tibetan Buddhists, Hindus, or Native Americans believe that our inner guide is someone who communicates with us through dreams. This guide may come from our own being or some areas of our spirit.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
If a guru appears in your dream, this indicates your connection with the whole of life, with collective wisdom or the collective unconscious. A guru is not concerned with the material world but with the realization of your eternal nature and life as it connects with the whole. Thus the guru in dreams will usually guide you towards greater self understanding, a deeper relationship with himself or herself, and instruct you in any necessary disciplines of mind and body. There will, where necessary, be a gradual unfolding to you of the inner meanings of ancient scriptures.
If you reach a stage in your dreams in which you become the guru, this suggests spiritual transformation of the most powerful and dramatic kind.... The Element Encyclopedia
Spiritualists, shamans and mediums often claim that spirit guides visit them in their dreams. The spirit guides often appear in the forms of animals, but may take on other forms: the form of loved ones already passed on, past teachers or elders, or important figures in the relevant mythology. According to Jungians, archetypal figures, such as the wise old man or the priestess that appear in dreams and offer guidance, are not guides from the spirit world but from the depths of your unconscious. Either way, they perform the same function as spirit guides. So if supernatural or archetypal figures appear in your dreams, are you in need of some sort of guidance? Could you use any of the advice they offer effectively in your waking life?... The Element Encyclopedia
